    I'm a little bit freaked out. I go to college and I have an Instagram account, although it is a travel-based one as I am a travel blogger and I do not associate myself personally with the account (i.e. I don't post selfies, I don't include my surname on the website).
    I am friends with a girl who goes to another college. She used to be in this group but for some reason they've all started blanking her and basically they are no longer friends at all. This group go to my college. I did know them but never liked them or hung out with them, except for the odd occasion. I heard through the grapevine that one of the guys in the group 'didn't like me', but his twin brother had a little obsession with me and kept declaring his love for me (I did not feel the same way).
    Ever since they fell out with my friend, he has started following me on my account and I don't know how he knows its me, and he likes all of my pictures within ten seconds of me posting, whether day or night.
    Given that he doesn't like me, blanks my friends, scuttles past me without a glance if I see him at college, and I rejected his twin brother, is it not a bit weird and creepy that he does this?
    Should I be aware of alterior motives or do you just think he is a weirdo?
    My friend believes he is doing it in order to make her mad, as in "I'm liking this girls photos who I don't even like, yet I'm not liking yours and I know you" type of thing, but I think that is too far-fetched and immature.

    It's a little weird, but there's nothing to suggest he has any awful motives behind what he's doing. He just likes you. He probably gets notifications from each time you post to Instagram straight to his phone, making it very easy to quickly interact with the post. As for how he found out, things like that just get around. You could've even showed up on his suggested to follow list and he figured it out because you were posting photos of places he'd heard you'd been to. He either likes you, or he's trying to make someone jealous. Either way, don't worry about it too much
